LAGRANGE, Ga. (AP) - LaGrange College officials have announced a $21 million project to produce a 43,000-square-foot laboratory facility and renovate a 27,000-square-foot science building.

LaGrange College President Dan McAlexander said in a news release Thursday that the new facility will house state-of-the-art spaces for instruction in biology, ecology, anatomy, physiology, chemistry and immunology. It is scheduled to be completed by January 2017.

The new facility also will contain room for research and offices for biology and chemistry faculty. The renovation of the 44-year-old science building will provide classrooms as well as modern labs.

School spokeswoman Debby Baker tells the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer (https://bit.ly/1S4Fvz2 ) that the college will hold a fundraising campaign to pay for the project.

Since 2008, the college has increased its enrollment by about 30 percent, to nearly 1,000 students.
